Sydney based printer, Momento Pro, has attained the ultimate graphic arts industry honour by winning the 2019 Premier Print Awards James H. Mayes Jr. Memorial ‘Best of Show’ prize, for a collector’s edition art book, Middlehurst | Middle Earth, by Australian landscape photographer Peter Eastway.

Now in their 71st year, the Premier Print Awards is the largest and most prestigious print competition on the global scene and the Academy Awards of the print world. Michael Makin, President and CEO of Printing Industries of America, stated that, “The Benny winners represent the best our industry has to offer. This year’s entries were outstanding, with 2,238 from 13 countries.”

In June, Momento Pro was notified that Middlehurst | Middle Earth had won the 2019 Best of Category for Art Books (4 or more colours), representing the most outstanding coffee-table book devoted to the reproduction of art, photography, or artistic collections.

The judges stated that, "The title of this masterpiece is Middle Earth, but a better title might be out of this world! Each spread is a visual feast for the senses. In the toughest category, this is numero uno. Extraordinary colour!"

On 2 October, at the Premier Print Awards Gala dinner in Chicago, the book was also awarded ‘Best of Show.’ Award Manager, Mike Packard describes this as, "The #1 award of the evening, the best of the best, resulting from all the Best of Category winners being judged against each other, and this was as close to a unanimous decision as we have ever had. Middlehurst | Middle Earth is a collector’s item. Congrats Momento Pro on your Best in Show."

This self-published limited edition book is a 42 x 42 cm inkjet-printed colossus featuring flawless photography from renowned Australian photographer Peter Eastway. Eastway captured the grandeur of the New Zealand landscape on a Phase One camera, then printed the images in a size and quality that did the files justice.

The book was handcrafted from the highest quality materials with the longest lifespan available today. It was printed onto 100% cotton rag using Epson Ultrachrome archival inks, and colour profiles created by international colour expert Les Walkling. These were the same ingredients that led Momento Pro to winning the Art Books (4 or more colours) category in 2016 for the Ken Duncan Portfolio Collection - also a collector’s item.

Momento Pro co-founder Geoff Hunt, confirmed that, “Winning the ‘Best of Show’ is humbling recognition of our 15 year focus on quality not quantity, for all our products, and for all our customers - consumers, professionals, photographers, artists and corporates. We’ll also continue helping Antipodeans preserve their artwork and memories in world class quality prints, right here in Sydney, and prove that printing photographs is far from dead.”

"It's a great thrill to be a part of the team that won the Benny Award", said Peter. It's one thing to use amazing cameras and visit amazing locations, but quite another to see your vision transformed into a beautiful physical work of art. And that's why I love working with Geoff and Libby at Momento Pro."

The limited edition book (45 copies only) can be purchased by special order through the Better Photography website for $2995. You can see a video of the book being opened, or visit our website to enjoy a flip-book.

"It would make a great Christmas present for the photographer in your life", said Peter. "Just saying!"

Here's the perfect Christmas gift, a book for you and a print for the family to hang on the wall! And all for just AUS 345 dollars delivered (within Australia), but as we'll prepare the print specially for you, now is a good time to order.

If you're looking to improve your photography, there's no better Christmas present than The New Tradition: a lavish, hard-cover book that exposes all of Peter Eastway's secrets and techniques through a portfolio of 100 beautifully printed photographs.

And as good as the printing in the book is, there's no better way to experience a photograph than with a real print. Peter is offering a selected range of A2, signed prints at very special prices, printed on a sheet of A2-size Canson Infinity Photographique Rag paper using an Epson SureColor P10070. The image will be signed, include a generous white border and is supplied unframed. Some of these prints are part-way through existing editions, so the number of available prints for this offer is limited to the edition number.
